Abstract: The intergenic region (IGR) of the medium (M) RNA of tomato spotted wilt Tospovirus (TSWV) isolates naturally infecting peanut (groundnut), pepper, potato, stokesia, tobacco and watermelon in Georgia (GA) and a peanut isolate from Florida (FL) was cloned and sequenced. The IGR sequences were compared with one another and with respective M RNA IGRs of TSWV isolates from Brazil and Japan and other tospoviruses. The length of M IGR of GA and FL isolates varied from 271 to 277 nucleotides. The M IGRs of TSWV from potato and stokesia, and tobacco and watermelon were identical with each other in their length and sequence. IGR sequences were more conserved (95
